In a recent interview with Forbes Magazine, Henry Rollins revealed that he auditioned to play Negan on The Walking Dead. Rollins told Forbes, “I went for the audition and there were five pages of really cool dialogue with all these curses and it was beautiful, but I didn’t get it. I later saw a photograph of the guy who did get it and he looks almost exactly like the comic book rendering.” The part of Negan is played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.


CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM AND MADTV RETURN TO TV

The return of two classic fan-favorite comedies hit the TV headlines this week. First, HBO announced on Tuesday the anticipated return of Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, but there is no set premiere date at his time. When asked about the reason for bringing the show back, David replied, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’” Also reported, the CW made public the premiere date of the new MadTV reboot along with the names of its new cast members, which include Michelle Ortiz (Life in Pieces), Lyric Lewis (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and Amir K (Argo) among others. The new MadTV premieres Tuesday, July 26 at 9 p.m. on the CW.

Starz announced this week that Orlando Jones (Sleepy Hollow) will play Mr. Nancy in the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods. Demore Barnes (12 Monkeys) has also been added to the cast as Mr. Ibis. Jones and Barnes join an impressive list of previously announced stars, which includes Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Crispin Glover, Jonathan Tucker, Gillian Anderson, Peter Stormare, and Cloris Leachman.

It’s Emmy voting season, and the first round of voting will be open for the next two weeks in order to narrow the very large field of potential nominees. Show’s have been campaigning for months, but one clip in particular is making the rounds this week. Rashida Jones’ cop procedural parody, Angie Tribeca, just released an Emmys consideration clip that’s dripping with gravitas. In it Jones explains why the show matters, and why it deserves an Emmy, and maybe something bigger than an Emmy — if something like that even exists.
